USM Anywhere (SaaS)

Overall Satisfaction with AlienVault USM

In my current position, I offer AlienVault USM Anywhere to businesses as a managed security service provider. The problem/solution use case is for multiple unrelated point solutions without centralized orchestration or a managed SIEM system in place.
  • The system is intuitive and easy to navigate.
  • Integration with key services like AWS and other cloud applications is crucial.
  • Links to MITRE, root cause, and remediation recommendations is also a very nice feature.
  • Difficult to configure for initial set up.
  • Key features like alarms for brute force attacks or malware should be automatic instead of needing to be created and configured.
  • Remediation should be taken one step further past recommendations to actual solutions able to be purchased or assisted by AlienVault.
Seems to be well suited for larger networks with multiple assets and no orchestration in place. The small business is not what I see as an ideal candidate due to the complexity involved to deploy and configure without dedicated IT staff.
